My Services:
Are you currently struggling with ongoing stresses, anxiety, low mood / depression or any other difficulty that life has presented you with?  Would you like to speak to someone independent, offering a non-judgemental, compassionate and professional psychological therapy service? Are you interested in therapy tailored personally to you, your goals and your current life situation?
Please be assured that you are not alone in this endeavour.  I believe that life has the ability to be wonderful, filled with appreciation, love / care and acceptance. I also understand that life will be extremely difficult and we sadly all experience loss, grief, rejection and disappointment throughout our lives. At these times, I have personally benefited from support from others, both in my personal life and with support in therapy sessions. As such, I take great honour in being able to support others to navigate through some of their most difficult times and hopefully see them experience beginning to reconnect with the life they value.
I have worked with a wide-range of emotional and life-situation difficulties, providing highly specialist assessment, formulation and evidence-based interventions tailored to individual needs . I have helped people in managing their experiences of anxiety (e.g., social anxiety, generalised anxiety, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, health anxiety), anger, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), physical health (e.g., pain, chronic illness, weight management) and neurological conditions (e.g., traumatic brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s), relationship difficulties, stress and managing life transitions, self-esteem and sleep difficulties. I have also supported people with enduring mental health difficulties (e.g., psychosis, bipolar, and personality complexities).
My training as a Clinical Psychologist has enabled me to specialise in a number of therapeutic approaches.  Every person, life situation and their values/goals are different, and so tailoring the therapy sessions to ‘best fit’ each person is imperative to ensure the therapy is as helpful to the person as possible.   Amongst others, the therapeutic models I specialise in include:
• Cognitive rehabilitation and Systemic Approaches
• Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
• Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)
• Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
• Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
• Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with 9 years’ qualified experience working with adults experiencing a range of emotional health and/or physical health difficulties. I have worked in a range of settings, including within primary care, secondary care, inpatient (mental health and physical health hospital settings) and forensic mental health services. I have also held a Clinical Lead role within an NHS setting. I have experience in consultation, supervision and teaching / training. I am Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered and a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I have enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) clearance.
I completed my undergraduate psychology degree at The University of Sheffield and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The University of Manchester. I have completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology at The University of Glasgow. Finally, I have also completed a BPS-accredited supervisory training course at The University of Manchester.
I offer telephone/online and face-to-face therapy sessions.  I currently offer clinics at the Prestwich Holistic Centre, 2b Mather Avenue, Prestwich, Manchester, M25 0LA.
Sessions usually last approximately 50 minutes and be charged at a rate of £90 per session (if via telephone/online) or £100 per session (if face-to-face).  I offer a free initial telephone consultation to assess suitability for therapy.  Payment is normally made at least 24 hours in advance of each session.  I am registered with most private health care insurance companies, so if you have insurance please check with your provider that they cover you for psychological therapy.
The number of sessions required varies dependent on the person, their wishes and their therapeutic aims.  Most courses of therapy range between 8-12 sessions, although can be briefer (e.g., 4 sessions) or longer (+20 sessions).  This is something that we can discuss within the initial consultation and develop a plan together.  Therapy sessions generally take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis to ensure therapy is most helpful / effective.
Please contact me to discuss further how therapy could benefit you, help you to achieve your goals and work towards living your values.
